on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new

years ago, i will say in the air and certainly in temperatures of temperature, but certainly the obama administration that hopes maybe coming out of some of the celebration still in the air here they'll start or try to bring the country together. you mentioned that vice-president biden will be going first, in just a few moments, justice sonia sotomayor will swear him in and he and the president will be at arlington national cemetery laying a wreath at the tomb of unknown and in the blue room hine me on the aren't side because the constitution says he needs to be sworn in on january 20th and the ceremonial stuff will happen on the capitol west front tomorrow. some of the celebration started yesterday, a children's inaugural ball the first lady went to along with dr. jill biden and trying to get folks involved this and also the president and first lady participating in a day of service, they participated in a project here, service project here in washington d.c. and they had a lot of cabinet members, the vice-president and others doing that as well and when the president had a chance to
address. when barack obama appeared four years ago the country did not know him, the beginning of his presidency. now for bet he and worse people know him. they know his strengths, weaknesses, the areas he's achieved and failed. it's more setting a brief mood for the country coming together. we have all this behind us. we're going to look ahead and then we'll get into the knitty gritty of our plans. >> second inaugurals are interesting things. some presidents have chosen to look backwards to talk about their accomplishments in the first term. others have not. george w. bush did not talk much about his first term but decided to make a bold foreign policy statement. what are the considerations that go into choosing what you say. >> when you look at the history of inaugural addresses there are some determined by the trajectory of history. john f. kennedy gave a speech that codified the moral commitments of the cold war. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like
that barack obama is self-confident and you see a seemingly different president to d today than we saw a year or two ago when we went through the debt nonsense in the middle of 2011. i think that he feels much more able to pull the strings and know what the power is and isn't. he's been scandal-free, and in part, that comes from the top. no disrespect to any of the presidents who got into problems bu but he sets a standard that people know the line they have to tow and they know it and that is why the administration has done well, and he will have the republicans at him and that is going to keep him from the overreach from the republicans. >> and history is what the president has to worry about, because this is almost like deja vu all over again and it takes the scandal out of f the scandal out of it, but the fog of war and what may happen, and what the president has to be cognizant of and not just the presidents that you mentioned, but lyndon baines johnson and other presidents that in the second term things happen o outside of their reach, and he needs to be cognizant of history. >> thank
remember that inspiring call from president obama exactly four years, to end partisan politics. if you were keeping score, and we are, that promise would actually fall into the incomplete category. promises considered, mostly clept, more jobs and a middle class tax break, ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan and, of course, making health care accessible for all. tomorrow morning the president will be making even more promises. the question though, can he keep them? back with me now bill schneider, resident fellow for the think tank and lynn sweet of the chicago sun times." bill, your organization spends a fair amount of time on important issues of the day. what promises can we expect to hear from president obama tomorrow? >> immigration reform. i mean, that's something he neglected in his first term and didn't give it any real priority, and it's very important. really helped him get elected, re-elected rather. guns will come up, i think, because the mood is right for that. i'm not sure how far he'll be able to go with that because of the resistance in the house, but he'll fight the good
obama faces the cameras bearing great news. 2013's going to be a good year he says as long as politics doesn't get in the way. >>> i'm s.e. cupp. let's see. it's going to be a real productive 2013. >>> i'm steve kornacki. a month since newtown and this afternoon vice president biden handed the president the wish list for gun control. former congress joe sustek takes his turn in "the cycle." >>> looks like a tough four years in washington. we're helping president obama break the second-term curse. >>> there's one more on envelope to open. who won the golden globes pool? spoiler alert, the answer coming in "the back spin." >>> tired words of president obama today as washington holds the nation up against another debt ceiling. >> it would be a self inflicted wound on the economy, it would slow down our growth. might tip us in to recession. and ironically, would probably increase our deficit. so to even entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd. we are not a deadbeat nation. >> thank goodness. but next, news fl
double in the coming year. joining us now is the author of decoding the obama health law. she's the former lt. governor of new york, betsy mccoy, who was in my memory, the very first person to start talking about the president's plan for health care. this is back in '09, nobody was talking about it yet and you were sounding this alarm and taking a lot of incoming. >> and here is the law. >> megyn: and she's the one who's read it. >> that's right. >> megyn: look at that, look at the dog eared papers and-- >> here is the new book that describes it in simple terms, beating obamacare. >> megyn: that looks much more digestible. you did not want to see this passed and now it's passed and now you feel that people need a guide to navigate around it the pitfalls, specifically, let's start with premiums. that's what's in the news, that premiums are up and going up higher. >> and there's a simple reason, there is no tooth fairy, and the new federal rule, some of which have already rolled out, are compelling all insurance companies to offer preventive care without a co-pay or deductible.
are -- we have a divided government now. it has been a difficult four years but i think president obama is a natural. i think he will make that a big theme of his second term. i think you will hear some of that tomorrow. host: this is from this morning's "the washington post" who writes a new term, a new obama. he points out and draws an aanalogy to f.d.r. and eisenhower. guest: the roosevelt second inaugural address is interesting to read. it really is at peace with the first inaugural address. this is a president saying i came in with a huge crisis, we're on the right path, we're going to keep going. he has a phrase in there, have we found our happy val valley? i -- valley. i don't read it as being an aggressive speech. he was speaking to the whole country but he wasn't in campaign mode. roosevelt was very good in that way and eisenhower never sounded like he was in campaign mode. guest: i think that speech is recognized as one of the better second inaugurals. i think it does echo some of the themes of president obama. one of the lines in that speech, i see a nation ill clothed -- 1/3
